Ph.D. Student Recruitment: Multiple PhD openings are available in my group. Student from CS/EE or related majors with one of the following expertises/interests are welcome to apply: (I) computer system/network security, (II) cyber-physical system or IoT design/analysis, (III) wireless communications or signal processing, (IV) adversarial machine learning. Please feel free to email me your CV and transcripts if you are interested. Take a look at NMSU campus.

Short Bio

Tao will join Department of Computer Science at New Mexico State University in 2019 Fall. He will receive his Ph.D. degree from University of South Florida under supervision of Dr. Yao Liu in 2019, and received his B.S. degree from Jilin University, China. His research focuses on network and cyber-physical security with an emphasis on designing defense methods that can protect emerging wireless technologies (e.g., IoT, 5G network) from being undermined by adversaries. Recently, he has been working on the adversary machine learning towards secure resource allocation in Multi-user MIMO systems. His research is also related to web security, specifically, on identifying security threats and developing countermeasures to improve web security. [Curriculum Vitae]
